This is the fifth article in a series about forming children for active participation in the Mass.
The Mass is both sacrifice and a meal. It’s not just Jesus’ sacrifice, but ours as well. However, in a culture where so many kids get anything they want, the idea of laying down one’s life for others or submitting to God’s will rather than their own may seem entirely foreign. At most, many would understand sacrifice as their monetary offering to the church or to charity, but catechists need to show that it is much more personal than that.
This second week of Advent, we look at Hamburg Altar (The Tree of Jesse) by Absolon Stumme. Use the video and activity suggestions to help children explore and connect to the season of Advent.
This first week of Advent, we look at Michelangelo’s Isaiah, Sistine Chapel detail. Use the video and activity suggestions to help children explore and connect to the season of Advent.
Working with young children can be a challenge, but children can also be fun and even give you insights into our faith when you look through their eyes of innocence and imagination. With that in mind, here are five tips for working with little children in faith formation sessions.
With a focus on the anticipation of the miracle of Christ’s birth, Loyola Press presents Arts & Faith: Advent, a series of videos featuring carefully curated works of art that focus on key themes and messages of the season. Art historian and theologian Daniella Zsupan-Jerome (Loyola University New Orleans) expertly walks viewers through vibrant pieces of fine art, delving into the Scripture and thematic motifs related to the four weeks of Advent.
